A. Pelangeon & J-L. Atteia (LATT-OMP) report:

We have used the spectral parameters of GRB 060614
provided by Golenetskii et al. (GCNC 5264) to
compute the spectral pseudo-redshift** of this burst
detected by SWIFT-BAT (Parsons et al., GCNC 5252).

We find a pseudo-redshift pz= 1.45 +/- 0.85 (90% error)

This is a typical value for a GRB.
